This monitor is awesome. At times I can hear my son breathing. Just about every movement he makes can be heard. A family member put her daughter in my son's crib and she was amazed at what all you could hear. I also love it because it has ten different channels you can chose between. This option is so nice, because if another device interferes with the monitor, you simply select a channel which doesn't have interference. This monitor also has five red lights which light up depending on how much noise your baby is making. This is useful if you want the sound off, but still want to monitor your child. The louder your child becomes the number of lights, which light up, increase. This monitor comes with two receivers, which you could but one in your bedroom and one another room. These receivers both have belt clips. It also has a long range on this monitor. I have been in the neighbor's front yard and never lost signal strength. This is another feature this monitor has. It tells you how good the reception is. The monitor also has a bar showing full battery, half battery, and when the battery needs to be charged it makes a beeping sound. The antenna is also short, which I love. It does not catch on my shirt, if I am working in the yard. The only thing I don't like about the monitor is it sometimes has static and makes clicking sounds. This monitor has been very durable. My son is fifteen months old and the monitor is in really great shape. There are a few scratches, but no cracks and not broken pieces. This says a lot, because between him and me, these receivers have been dropped hundreds of times.
